This chapter establishes the historical context for American settlement in the southern Puget Sound from the 1840s to about 1900. It explores the inherent tension in liberalism in order to explain how Americans used colonial technologies to justify and promote Indians' disappearance and dispossession, as well as how Indians strategically embraced facets of Western liberalism to resist its effects.

Keywords:   American settlement, southern Puget Sound, liberalism, colonialism, Indians
